Wednesday 5th December, 2018-The Prices and Consumer Affairs Division is assuring the public that a YouTube video that is making the rounds on social media did not originate in Antigua.
The video is captioned: “Courts rob people on Black Friday must see.”
Prices and Consumer Affairs is reporting that the video, which alleges possible price gouging, was drawn to their attention last week and has been the source of much investigation. The department noted that from their findings, and from discussions held with Courts Antigua and Barbuda, they are satisfied that the video was not recorded in Antigua but at another of the store’s regional locations. Further, the Unicomer Group of which COURTS is a subsidiary, in a statement referred to the “video posted online showing a disparity in the price of washing machines at one of our branches in St Lucia.”
